My very happy un-bridal shower was truly one of the most beautiful and creative days of my life. I fell into a rabbit hole of a surprise on Saturday, October 12th that only Lewis Carroll's imagination could have written.
It was hosted by a bunch of spectacular Mad Hatters. I spent the afternoon surrounded by my closest friends and family members in a room decorated with the most wonderland-est decor. There was an amazing dessert table, hilarious games, and splendid conversations over a cup of tea.
My top three highlights of the day included:
The shock and surprise I felt when I realize I was not attending my mom's best friend's birthday party.
My mom's impromptu speech, after realizing she left her prepared one at home, then got herself too emotional to finish.
The incredible decor inspired by my love for Alice in Wonderland, most specifically the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, complete with custom signs, desserts fit for the perfect tea time, and teacup favors.
That despite having an awful cold, I had a great time and enjoyed a safe meal the restaurant made specifically for me: seared salmon cooked in olive oil and scrambled eggs, using Vital Farms eggs my mom provided to them.
